Product Description
The Raspberry Pi is a single-board computer developed in the UK by the Raspberry Pi Foundation. A credit-card sized computer that plugs into your TV and a keyboard, it's a capable computer which can be used for many of the things that your desktop PC does, like spreadsheets, word-processing and games. It also features Media Center capability and high-definition (HD) video playback capability.

The Raspberry Pi Model B+ is the second revision of the original Raspberry Pi. Compared to the original Raspberry Pi Model B it has:

  • Micro SD. The old friction-fit SD card socket has been replaced with a much nicer push-push micro SD version.
  • The GPIO header has grown to 40 pins, while retaining the same pinout for the first 26 pins as the original Raspberry Pi Model B.
  • Four USB 2.0 ports, compared to 2 on the Model B, and better hotplug and overcurrent behaviour.
  • Lower power consumption. By replacing linear regulators with switching ones we’ve reduced power consumption by between 0.5W and 1W.
  • Better audio. The audio circuit incorporates a dedicated low-noise power supply.
